More Info:
  • Richard Roeper

    To Be Takei is a celebration of a man of great resilience, infectious humor, a voracious appetite for the richness of the human experience, and the best laugh in the history of laughing.

  • Marc Mohan

    William Shatner, it must be said, comes off as an insufferable, pompous jerk. Maybe he's jealous. After all, at age 75, Takei is an openly gay Asian American with an overwhelming social media fan base, making him the one who has really gone where no man has gone before.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Indeed, the doc works best as a relationship study, filled with endearing moments of intimate bickering. Takei is a self-admitted ham but a playful one, projecting his confidence in increasingly meaningful directions.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Ronnie Scheib

    A unique blend of camp and conviction, To Be Takei deftly showcases George Takei’s eclectic personality and wildly disparate achievements.

    Variety Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    In the new documentary To Be Takei, it becomes clear that Takei is a man who defies expectations and subverts stereotypes at virtually every turn. It’s just a shame the movie wasn’t as progressive as its subject.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • James Rocchi

    This portrait of the actor winds up being a parable about all of us.

    Film.com Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    The kind of documentary that’s smart enough to step back and let its charming subject take over. It won’t break new ground, but it’s not lazy or generic.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Gary Goldstein

    In all, writer-director Jennifer M. Kroot effectively jams in quite a lot about the super-busy Takei.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Penny Walker

    The film is choppy in parts, but it is George Takei's approachability, his constant big laughter, even his singing (he performs "Don't Fence Me In" after explaining how the internment camps made the lyrics poignant to him) that tie it together.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Sherilyn Connelly

    To Be Takei is never less than joyful — much like the man himself.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Takei is a natural storyteller who lends an enjoyable flow to the movie’s uncomplicated proceedings.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Clayton Dillard

    Jennifer M. Kroot plays things a bit too straight and safe by giving into basic emotional and thematic possibilities of each period in Takei's prolific early life and subsequent Hollywood career.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Director Jennifer Kroot’s good-natured biography is so appealing that even non-Trekkies may be convinced we needed a full-length documentary about the man who was Sulu.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Chris Klimek

    He seems like one of the least neurotic men on the planet, and yet how could that describe someone who lived with a heavy secret for 68 years? That’s the question Kroot’s film circles without ever managing completely to ask, much less fully answer.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • David Rooney

    To Be Takei follows multiple threads without pulling any one of them satisfyingly into focus, making it amusing and even poignant, though not quite the window into its subject's life that it might have been with a more penetrating observer.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Vadim Rizov

    The technical, workmanlike production is made more irritating than necessary by Michael Hearst’s score, whose grating circus-comes-to-town sprightliness is routinely slathered over mundane footage.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Nicolas Rapold

    [Ms. Kroot's] banalizing documentary is self-defeating as it tags along with Mr. Takei and his wonky husband, Brad, on their busy daily schedule.
